Editor’s note: This information hub is being updated regularly with additional resources. Last update: May 29, 2020.
As our country begins reopening, we’ve collected some of the best resources we’ve found to help businesses navigate the process of adjusting their operations in response to the Coronavirus—from a COVID-19 mythbusters series to a guidance tool that helps you determine if you’re ready to reopen.
As the reopening regulations continue to evolve, we encourage you to learn and strictly follow all local and state regulations and laws that apply to reopening and operations, as well as guidance from trusted organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Be sure to also keep your website and Yelp page up to date for your customers as you adapt and change your operations.
If you have questions or if there is anything we can do to help, get in touch by logging into your Yelp for Business account for Yelp contact details. Our customer success and account teams are fully staffed and ready to assist.
